Community Engagement


We’re on a mission to bring color and brightness to the communities where we live and operate.

Creating cheerful classrooms. Fueling future inventors with inspiration. The possibilities are bright when our colleagues, community partners and stakeholders join together to create vibrant communities.
With the unique talents of our employees, the power of our products and financial contributions from PPG and the PPG Foundation, our vision comes to life in the local communities where we live and work.
We deliver on our vision globally in the areas of education, community sustainability and employee engagement.

Today, our commitment to "protect and beautify the world" is more relevant than ever. While so much has changed during the COVID-19 pandemic, we remain focused on protecting our communities by supporting our most vulnerable neighbors. Learn more about our response.


The global pandemic is impacting every community and citizen in the world and, like others, we want to help those in need. This brings a powerful meaning to our company's purpose - to protect and beautify the world - by living our values to serve our people, customers and communities.

Color Is at the Core of Our Communities

In the hands of volunteers, PPG paint makes life-changing differences. We combine volunteer power and vibrant paint colors to brighten and transform schools and neighborhoods.



From Student to Scientist

Education enables possibilities and progress through curiosity and discovery. We help future innovators spark a passion for experimentation and learning in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) and support young people pursuing their studies in these fields.
